Family Oriented High Tech Commuter Town

Antioch is a nice, diverse, quiet, family oriented community. I have been here for 20 years, so I have seen many changes here.
My kids played in the community water park, attended karate and went to the local public schools.

Since it is more affordable bay area town, my wife was able to stay home and help in the PTA and volunteer in the schools. Most of the teachers and administrative staff have been wonderful, even though the schools have had challenges from being impacted by new students in the early 2000's. The Dozier-LIbbey Medical High School is a gem in the Antioch School District. Our child wore scrubs daily, and the Kaiser Hospital next door was very integrated with the school activities. The kids even shadowed doctors to learn about the medical and healthcare professions. They are currently in a healthcare program at university.

Our other child attended Deer Valley High School. They attended a UC School for undergrad and were accepted in Master's programs in an ivy league and other top schools around the country. The dedicated teachers and staff at the local schools were very influential to their later successes. Of course, parent involvement is also an important factor in this team effort.

Since the widening of Highway 4 and the new BART station, I see more people moving into Antioch/Brentwood area. San Francisco and the surrounding areas have an increasing amount of employment options. There has been an increase in restaurants and shopping options in our area. Now San Francisco, Oakland and their airports are accessible by train. Lyft and Uber have been great additions for access. I work in the city, so it's nice to return to our laid back community.

I have enjoy the Mediterranean climate. In winter, the hills are as green as billiard tables. There is fog and misty rain. Summer is dry and can get over 100 for a few days, so the hills turn yellow. The Delta helps cool the area in the evening. We are in between to SF and Sacramento, so many activities are accessible. Locally, I see many people enjoy walking, hiking, barbecuing, bike riding, boating, water sports, etc. The community is very diverse, so you can enjoy international cuisine options.

I have enjoyed living in Antioch and I think the future is bright for the area.

Antioch, CA - Home To Abandoned Mines and Commuters

Named after the city in Syria, Antioch is situated in the Bay Area of California. Once a popular mining area for coal and copper, this California city has a rich history. Hiking is allowed in the nearby East Bay Regional Park, where the mines once were. All of the mines have been closed down, but there are still a few remnants of days gone by in the city. After the fall of the mining businesses, Antioch never picked up any new booming revenue sources.

Mostly a residential area, Antioch real estate prices are affordable for any income, making it a popular place to live for commuters. You can reach the cities of Sacramento and San Jose in about 75 minutes and San Francisco in about 60 minutes. There are good jobs are to be found in the city itself, but since most of the population work in other areas, Antioch is fairly quiet for most of the day.

Visitors will not find many major attractions in Antioch in addition to hiking trails. Prewett Water Park is a fun aquatic park for kids and families, but that is the extent of exciting entertainment in Antioch. The city is not without great dining, though. For fair prices visitors will enjoy Carpaccio Ristorante, offering a variety of high quality cuisine.
